Pucker up! Just in time for Easter, YumEarth is stocking store shelves with a delicious candy that kids will love. Yes, it’s candy… but if you’re going to treat your kids, YumEarth candy is the way to go. Their YumEarth Naturals Sour Beans are made with real fruit juice, (with a nod to the Easter Bunny, the delectable jelly beans contain purple carrot juice), fruit extracts and natural ingredients. They contain no artificial dyes, no MSG and they are dairy-free, gluten-free, fat-free, soy-free, peanut-free and tree-nut free. Each serving provides 100% of daily vitamin C and has less than 70 calories. Don’t let the “sour” name fool you. These new jelly beans somehow manage to be the perfect combination of sweet and tart — making them simply irresistible.

Petit Collage’s new pop-out and color sets have an added twist that sets them apart from their previously released pop-out sets — kids can now color the characters and the scene themselves. Available in a pirate or castle theme, each set encourages little hands to punch out the shapes, design and decorate the various pieces, and assemble the set (and then, of course, comes playtime itself!) Both sets come with five colored pencils and a sheet of stickers and are printed with vegetable inks on recycled paper. We’re going to stock up on both for a rainy day or “What do we do now?” activity.

+ Pirate-themed pop-out and color set $11.00

+ Castle-themed pop-out and color set $11.00
